Drug Addiction Facts

  • Withdrawing from Fentanyl is very similar to that of heroin and it can be very uncomfortable and painful.
  • A recent study of cocaine abusers found elevated levels of serum C-reactive protein, a protein associated with inflammation, associated with endothelial abnormalities and coronary artery calcification. Both contribute to heart disease.
  • The length of stay and intensity of an inpatient treatment is defined by the severity and complexity of psychological, medical, and substance abuse issues of patients.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions regarding intensity of care, because the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehab program while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this may seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehab.

Partial Hospitalization/Day Treatment

Partial hospitalization, or Day Treatment as it's sometimes referred to as, is a kind of drug treatment center meant for individuals who need and want a comprehensive and organized rehabilitation plan and atmosphere yet don't need 24 / 7 care. It can help make men and women in recovery stay supported during the course of action without upsetting other activities they may need to sustain during treatment. Partial hospitalization/Day Treatment is also an alternative for those who have completed an inpatient or residential facility and want assistance with the smooth transition back into an average drug free lifestyle.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug treatment program which is in their network of providers and there may be other limitations such as just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they like and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.

Military Insurance (E.G., Va, Tricare)

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehab center of preference.
